FAU led Ball St. much of the evening but a Riley Neal touchdown with 1:47 remaining in the game propelled the Cardinals to a 31-27 victory.
Afterward, FAU coach Charlie Partridge addressed the media, discussing the effect of the game’ three lightning delays, the mindset of the team and the play of a defense that allowed at least 30 points for the fourth time in four games.
The loss dropped FAU to 1-3 on the season and concluded the Owls’ non-conference schedule. FAU travels south to face FIU on Saturday in the Shula Bowl. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
